"We love our CRHC group! You all have helped us so much throughout the years and it's the first place I go to for Rural clinic info with regards to all things Medical for the state of Colorado! Conferences when we can go are always so helpful and give us a true sense of where things are at." - Amber Hickert Practice Manager, Pediatrics Associates Professionals, LLC

"The Colorado Rural Health Center (CRHC) supports all rural health center organizations in recognition, funding and training. In 2020, Lake City Area Medical Center (LCAMC) directly benefited from hours of grant review provided by the staff at the CRHC, including help calculating fringe costs. Due to the dedicated grant-support team at CRHC, LCAMC was able to secure a robust grant for team-based care through the Colorado Health Foundation. Without support from CRHC, our proposal would not have been as strong or been able to secure as much funding. Continued healthcare in rural CO is more secure thanks to the CRHC."
- Ashley Mines, Lake City Area Medical Center

Background Statement

Created in 1991, the Colorado Rural Health Center (CRHC) serves as the Colorado State Office of Rural Health. Every state operates an Office of Rural Health, and CRHC is one of only three in the country that is structured as a non-profit organization. It was formed by a group of organizations and legislators to identify and address rural health needs. CRHC started with one employee, one grant from the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy and a budget of $38,000. The staff has grown to 22 employees with an annual operating budget of over $3 million. In spite of our growth, our vision has always remained the same, to improve healthcare services in rural communities and to ensure that all Coloradans have access to comprehensive, affordable, high quality healthcare.

CRHC has a strong reputation statewide and nationally as an innovative leader in addressing rural healthcare issues. CRHC partners with many well-respected organizations at a federal, state and local level to raise funds to support programs that address both general and specific healthcare issues in rural Colorado.
